Angie Lewin studied BA (Hons) Fine Art Printmaking at Central St. Martins College of Art and Design between 1983 and 1986, followed by a year’s part-time postgraduate printmaking at Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts.
After working in London as an illustrator she studied horticulture and a move to Norfolk prompted a return to printmaking.
Inspired by both the clifftops and saltmarshes of the North Norfolk coast and the Scottish Highlands, Angie depicts these contrasting environments and their native flora in wood engraving, linocut, silkscreen, lithograph and collage. Attracted to the relationships between plant communities on an intimate level, even the fine lines of insect eggs on a flower bud are observed in her work.
Still lives often incorporate seedpods, grasses, flints and dried seaweed collected on walking and sketching trips.
As well as designing fabrics and stationery for St Jude’s, which she runs with her husband Simon, she have completed commissions for Penguin, Faber, Conran Octopus, Merrell and Picador.
She has also designed fabrics for Liberty. In 2006 Angie was elected to The Royal Society of Painter Printmakers and in 2008 to The Society of Wood Engravers. In 2010 she was elected to The Art Workers Guild, and in 2016 to The Royal Watercolour Society. Angie lives and work in Scotland.
